Very well maintained aviary . Lots and lots of birds and kakatoos. These birds which are from all over the world and endangered can be seen here .I wonder who imported these endangered species in India. The entry is free to the aviary but very rudely staffed. The camera sessions with the birds @ Rs300 per photo and the cameraman... More

Journeying to this shrine takes time, but the real hit is to visit the bonsai (miniature garden) and the bird sanctuary. One must note that the cleanliness is good and nature lovers would enjoy this location.

Very well maintained place for birds. All caged birds and many endangered species. No photography allowed inside the parrots zones. Designated photographers take pictures but it is way too expensive, although it is good to have one Picture taken for a record.

The temple and Ashram is indeed a decent religious place but the best attractions are the Parrot garden and the bonsai garden. One possibly would not have seen such a vast variety of parrots in one place. You can feed the parrots for a small charge of INR 10. Once inside the feeding enclosure, parrots would be all over you.... More

They have informative... More

Great place to visit in Mysore. My daughter had the best time talking to the parrots and feeding them.
